REMARKS

Leaves vary in size from tree to tree. The 'Shady Lady' grows slower, has small leaves and grows more compact. Nice shade tree. Mites may attack the leaves (which will show swellings), but will not kill it. Trips too will attack the leaves, which gives the leaves a reyish color. Good tree for parking lots and around the house.
